In an instant, Adam's life has crumbled. The trauma keeps him awake at night, the pressure squeezing against his lungs, his soul. His life continues on a downward spiral until he's entirely broken. And he doesn’t know how he’ll ever be whole again. Until he meets Jasmine.

He finds her while working as an official for the DGSE—France’s external intelligence agency—in Beirut, Lebanon. Their hearts are jolted back to life at the sight of one another, but their erotic affair is a dangerous one. Jasmine is a woman he cannot have and was never meant to be with.

Her beauty captivates him; her love overwhelms him. Though Jasmine suffers from her own trauma and feels constricted within the confines of her societal role, she too finds temporary healing and freedom in her wild but secret romance with Adam. But for how long can they keep their dangerous love a secret?

Desire and Prejudice is about the healing power of true lovemaking and the damning power of ethnic bias. When Jasmine and Adam first meet, they are both totally caught by surprise; their inner feelings are the magnetic force that draws them to each other. Their burning desires toward one another are unstoppable, but they are condemned by their separate lives - he is a French official and she is a Muslim. They find ways to be with each other when they couldn't.

The poetic letter takes the reader into the minds of two lovers desperately wanting one another, but each holding back because of their cultural backgrounds and the fear of getting caught in their dangerous game.
The erotic descriptions are vivid enough, but scarcely the right quantity of description to know precisely what is going on. Desire and Prejudice is much more than “boy meets girl, they fall in love”; it tells a realistic, believable story that readers haven't heard before. The characters, nor the twisted end of the story, are definitely not the stereotypical a reader can predict.

Desire & Prejudice
 is a sexy love story with a spy thriller twist by one of the most exciting new authors of 2014. Through the story of Adam and Jasmine, first-time author Jean-Louis McMillan uses the classic tale to explore the modern art of lovemaking and the power of redemption.

Does love have the power to overcome prejudice? Can it heal a wounded soul?

*Author’s Note: This is a contemporary love story with sexual content and strong language. Recommended reading age: 18+

Reviews…
I loved this book! The author, Jean-Louis McMillan, has created a contemporary romance with some really lovable characters with complicated issues.

First thing I saw/read in this book wasn't table of contents or something like that...It was one of mine favourite quotes (From A.E.), I immediately felt some connection with the Jean-Louis McMillan (Author of this Masterpiece) and continued my reading with his Foreword. 20-40 minutes (didn't have a feeling for time passing) later I was already at 6th chapter of book with my mouth open widely.
